The Internet as Political Lie Detector

by Timothy Karr
MediaCitizen
October 12, 2012

In a year of misleading political attack ads and distracted television newscasters, the Internet may offer salvation for voters seeking the truth. 

A new Google poll found that 64 percent of battleground-state voters have used the Internet to fact-check the candidates in 2012...

Tricky Mitt: What's He Hiding?







Mitt Romney’s not being straight with the American people. 
Even as his Republican allies call for him to release more tax returns, he still refuses.

We already know he has money in a Swiss bank account and tax havens in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. But even CNN is saying that either Romney's stupid or he's hiding something more—so what's he hiding?

Come up with your clever, absurd, or outlandish theory about what Mitt Romney's hiding in his unreleased tax returns and submit your answer below. Then rate your favorite responses from other MoveOn members.

We’re going to take the top five answers and put them in a graphic that we can all share with our social networks—to let folks know we’re dealing with a Tricky Mitt.

You can't get into Obama campaign events without a valid photo ID.  Tickets are matched to ID's at the doors.

So what's the problem with getting a legal photo ID just to vote ?

Some states even issue photo ID's it for free.  But that's not good enough ?
 


It's amazing that you are duped by such a false analogy — getting into a campaign event where you see the President in person contains a security issue that requires an ID...  it is a privilege...  voting is a right guaranteed by the Constitution...  not everybody has the right to attend a campaign event, but everybody that meets the requirements listed in the Constitution has the right to vote...  so that analogy is so false it is amazing that you fall for it...


and you say,  "Currently, the widely accepted number of still registered dead voters in the US is 2 million."  It is widely accepted by whom?  Who are all these people who accept this as truth, and why don't you identify them in your claim?  Ever heard of footnotes?  Do you see how I don't say, "It is widely accepted that many Republicans think Romney should release his tax forms?"  Do you see where I name, and provide a link to every Republican who has said that Romney should release his tax forms?

So I prove what I say, and you just make up silly bullshit...

Romney Economics


It didn’t work in Massachusetts, and it won’t work now.

Mitt Romney ran for governor of Massachusetts promising more jobs, less debt, and smaller government. Here’s what Massachusetts got instead:

—Jobs: 47th out of 50 states in job creation
—Taxes and fees: Increased by $750 million per year
—Long-term debt: Increased more than $2.6 billion
—Outsourcing: State jobs outsourced overseas
—Manufacturing: Jobs declined at twice the national rate

Romney Economics didn't work then, and won't work now.

Sign our petition demanding that Mitt Romney release his tax return to the public — and we'll deliver every signature we gather directly to Romney's campaign HQ in Boston in front of the press.


We Demand the Truth

George Romney released 12 years worth of tax returns to the public when he ran for president — and every major presidential candidate since has followed his lead. Every candidate except Mitt Romney.

We demand the truth. Mitt Romney needs to release his full tax returns to the public immediately and prove he has nothing to hide.

What's Mitt Romney Hiding?

George Romney released 12 years worth of tax returns to the American people when he ran for president in 1968. Since then, presidential candidates — Republicans and Democrats — have followed his lead and released multiple tax records for public scrutiny.

All presidential candidates, except one.

Mitt Romney has only released one year of records after persistent pressure. It raises the question: What does Mitt Romney have to hide?

Romney Would Be the First US President With a Swiss Bank Account: Let That Sink In

Daniel Cetina
PolicyMic
19 hours ago

Last week, Vanity Fair published an alarming report detailing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s offshore accounts and shady investment history. The findings complicate Romney’s already questionable financial history. From the Republican presidential primary onwards, the former Massachusetts governor has found himself under considerable fire for a variety of alleged financial malfeasances and ambiguities, including his surprising tax returns – submitted when pressured to by other Republican presidential hopefuls and Democrats alike – and morally reprehensible dealings at investment firm and Bain & Company offshoot Bain Capital, which Romney co-founded in 1984.

But Romney’s offshore accounts are both more politically relevant than his other pecuniary concerns and potentially more damaging. Romney’s offshore accounts are located in at least three distinct locales: the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, and Bermuda, all of which are historical hotspots of international financial intrigue and dirty money. The locations – particularly the Cayman Islands – are regarded as tax havens: there is scarce regulation, low local taxation, and virtually no cooperation in the global fight against money laundering. That Mitt Romney neglected to disclose the offshore accounts in his January tax returns – and has since declined to discuss them when directly questioned – merely compounds the drama.

And that is of course secondary to the most commonsense questions of them all: why would a self-described patriotic citizen who claims to have helped the American worker stash millions in non-American accounts? And if there was no wrongdoing involved, why not disclose them the first time?

Justice, morality, and historical precedent demand that Romney clearly and honestly account, for lack of a better word, for the offshore accounts. Romney’s father, former Michigan Governor George Romney, made history and set the precedent for subsequent presidential elections by being the first to release his own tax returns – 12 years’ worth – during his own run at the White House, citing the need for financial transparency. Meanwhile, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich astutely observed: “I don’t know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account.”...
